Dyed blonde hair or blonde highlights can be pretty finicky. You walk out of the salon with the perfect shade of blonde. Weeks later, you notice that your once ashy blonde hair has taken on an orange-and-gold hue. That’s not what you wanted. After sitting in the chair for hours and paying for a salon visit, you don’t want to go back right away for toning. Luckily, there are plenty of blonde-friendly shampoos and conditioners that are designed to bring your blonde back and erase brassiness.
We rounded up the best hair toners for you. One of our picks can be used on any highlighted hair, whether you’ve got dark hair or blonde hair. The other two options are geared toward people who define their hair as blonde, whether they have a balayage look or bleached hair. There’s even a set that includes both shampoo and conditioner, so you can focus on treating your hair. The shampoos below don’t only help you retain your color. It also helps soften your color-treated hair, bring back some moisturize into your locks and adds a gleaming shine to your hair.
